Milton Keynes Hindu Association volunteers deliver over 3,000 hot meals to vulnerable residents

    Volunteers are delivering hundreds of hot meals per week, and have delivered over three thousand meals since lockdown began.

    Members of the Milton Keynes Hindu Association, which is based in Broughton, are out each day making deliveries of fresh hot meals to people that need them most. 

    On Monday alone, 127 deliveries were made which consisted of Vegetable Biryani and Raita alongside some crisps. Deliveries were made to Milton Keynes University Hospital, MK Food Bank, Winter Night Shelter MK, Boots Pharmacy in Bradwell Common and vulnerable adults in shielding.

    Lynne, age 73, is one of the local residents who receives a donation three times a week. She says it is "amazing" what the volunteers are doing, and says the volunteers are very friendly and chatty when they arrive at her door.

    Each week, the association provides updates on social media regarding how the initiative is doing. On a Facebook post, the Milton Keynes Hindu Association, said: "MKHA are happy to be carrying out this very important service to make sure that our elders and people in isolation and hard-working frontline staff are provided hot and nutritious meals."

    Milton Keynes Hindu Association's work has been supported by donations from the public and their sponsors including the Milton Keynes Community Foundation.
